MKG127 installation

Imaging Saturn (Oppositions 2011-2040). As installed at MKG127 Gallery, February-March 2013. Charcoal drawings on Arches 88 (15x30"), chromogenic photographs mounted on di-bond (36x60").


This work presents my ongoing research as a novice amateur astronomer and astro-photographer. The exhibition includes 29 drawings and 2 photographs. I plan to photograph Saturn each year of its 29.42 year-long orbit around the sun-this exhibition included the 2011 and 2013 images. The suite of 29 drawings depicts Saturn at three fields of view, at midnight on the day of its opposition-its nearest annual approach to earth, directly opposite the sun-from 2011 to 2040.

This project was made possible through the generous support of the Saskatchewan Arts Board.
